. >> for the vast majority of people who have health insurance that works, you can keep it. >> all right. note that is a difference? as the obama care plans have gone live, some people have been notified that they can't keep their plans after all. here's why. most of the time it's because the plans they have don't meet the minimum standards of the affordable care act. that law requires everyone gets mental health care, maternity care and medication coverage. and out-of-pocket costs are capped at 6,350s $6,350 a year. now, with a few exceptions, the plans that don't meet that minimum will be gone. right? so unless you meet all three of those categories, your plan will not be offered. and the new plans offered that follow obama care requirements, they're more expensive often because they have to cover these extra items. now, the data mostly anecdotal right now. but for example, our elizabeth cohen spoke to a 34-year-old man who buys his own insurance. he's now paying $173 a month with a $5,000 deductible. his new plan would cost $244 a month with a deductible of more than $6,000. that costs more

the administration's own very serious mistakes. as rovner reported, obama's people naively figured republican states couldn't resist all that cash coming down from the federal government and would decide to create their own insurance exchanges and expand their medicaid programs. not so. republicans, it seems, have their principles, and health care for poor people is not one of them. ideology trumped money. republicans aside, obama care had its own built-in problem, born of original sin. and some of us have to resist the temptation to say, "we told you so"! four years ago we said the public option in health care, a kind of medicare for all, would be easier to launch and simpler to operate than the rube goldberg contraption that came to be known as obama care. rube goldberg, for those of you under a certain age, was the fellow who designed machines that made simple tasks much more complicated. back in 2009, when obama first became president, polls showed the public option was a popular idea. lots of americans were fed up with paying bloated premiums to giant insurance companies that charged us for the

to be left in the lurch. and the individual market is -- it's a difficult place to buy insurance now. because people go in, they don't have a lot of information. often they buy policies that are skimpy. the administration says that president obama is promised that if you like what you have you can keep it. that they had grandfathered in all these old policies. the fact is the grandfather clause didn't work. it excluded a lot of people. and it was -- gwen: and could opt out of it. >> companies could opt out of it and also didn't apply to any policy that was written after the middle of 2010. and most people renew these policies year to year. so a lot of those people are going to be in the lurch. gwen: let's speak more -- broader about -- isn't the whole idea of insurance that you're supposed to be in a risk pool, that you're supposed to share the risk and paying for something you won't necessarily get? and the complaints about these canceled policies are people not getting the policy they want is they're paying for something that they didn't want. like maternity care if they're single. >> if th
